Dojo Rules for Training in Summer Heat
1. Bring a bottle of water!
2. Wear Summer Uniform or Just Gi Trousers and T-Shirt
3. Work to 50% of your usual intensity
4. During drink breaks – more fluid, less chat!
5. If you feel or experience any of the symptoms below, report immediately to your instructor!
Early signs of dehydration include fatigue, thirst, dry lips and tongue, lack of energy, and feeling overheated. But if kids wait to drink until they feel thirsty, they’re already dehydrated!
Heat exhaustion: Dizziness, nausea, vomiting, headaches, weakness, muscle pain, and sometimes unconsciousness.
